My mom made me do it......






We were perusing yard sales last friday...


when we came across this chair at our neighbors house.


I almost passed right by it...


orange and green stripes are just not in my color palate.


Then Out of the blue......


Fin said to me...


mom...you could use that chair for your photo shoots.

You know all your children are fantastic!!! But Fin is really my favourite one....He's adorable!!! Maybe because he's the younger one and he's so tender!! Anyway, good choice. xxx

Love it!

Gail said...

What a handsome little guy you have there....so funny, too. So.....did you get it? You know you could always recover it. Reupholstered furniture with old character is the best.

Hi there!
Finn is adorable! (Super cute, but don't tell him, just say "handsome"!) Also,I think that chair would look awesome upholstered in a rough linen...Hope you have a great day! Stop by for a visit sometime.

Fun pics.. I need to take Fin with me yard sale in.....

P.S. He is so darn cute!

Kathy's Red Door Welcome said...

Let me get my hands on that chair...I'm thinking paint the wood antique white and slipcover it in burlap. What da ya think? Of course, when you have a boy as cute as Fin to pose by it... you don't really need anything more!

Debby said...

Brilliant!!! Great pics.

Julie Harward said...

An awesome chair! And an even more awesome young boy...so cute! Come say hi :D

Leah C said...

Isn't it great when your child helps you find treasures for a photo shoot?! I guess, once in awhile, they do listen to us;) What a cutie Fin is!

Mary said...

I have a little blonde haired blued eyed niece that would be a perfect match for that little Fin. So stinkin' cute!

And the chair...I think you need to become crafty and try your hand at upholstery. How hard could it be, right??

See you this weekend I'm sure...

Laura PARING DOWN said...

I can't wait to see what becomes of that chair. Haha!

Florence said...

Isn't great when I children see through our eyes a good thing. Florence

Anita said...

Now this child knows his Momma! Rip that upholstery off, paint that wood, tack on some canvas dropcloth and VOILA!

Melanie said...

Love the pics...He is just too cute!!!
I cannot wait to see what you do with that chair!!! :-)

fiberdoodles said...

Cute, cute!

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

That's so cute! My kids do that sort of thing too. I guess we're training them well. ;-) You still coming through my neck of the woods in July?

gretchen said...

oh, flashbacks! I had chairs in that 'lovely' fabric, back in the 70's or was it the 80's? ...not with all that great wood or I'd still have them and without the stipes!

your son is just too cute!

Simone said...

Lovely chair!

I am guessing the last shot is where you paid him to smile :)

lisaroy said...

loving your little guy but LOVING the chair!! I would have snatched it up in a second! : )

paperbird said...

He is too cute- I would set him up with my Lu Lu but then she'd be the older woman- nobody likes to be the older woman.

Leslie said...

so cute when they have their own ideas like that! I'm sure with a tad of your love (and maybe the help of your seamstress friend) it'll be Lola Bs beautiful!
